The morning began as most mornings do in the western Adirondacks, with a thick mist hanging over the lakes and ponds. With the thermometer at the back door reading a cool 52, I was looking forward to some early morning fishing in the mountains.
Today I had decided to explore some water I have not fished. When I arrived, the water temperature was a nice 62 but the water level was low. I had wanted to fish the Ausable Wulff, the usual, and the Ausable bomber. I started off in a long pool with the usual and was surprised by the lack of interest. I switched over to the Wulff and had the first and largest brook trout of the day. As I moved up the stream there was surprisingly little interest in the Wulff or the Ausable bomber but I did manage to bring a half dozen smaller brook trout to my hand. I guess the bright morning sun had put most of the fish in hiding.
